New Lodge Capital Campaign
Hope For Heroes will continue empowering our nation’s disabled heroes with the construction of a new lodge in the Hudson Valley, New York, allowing us to widen our array of outdoor activities that we provide. Handicapped accessible and sitting on several hundred scenic acres, this 4,000 square foot lodge will provide the chance for disabled military, fire, police, EMS personnel to experience the healing power of nature, and to connect with each other. Every donation large and small will help us reach our $5.8 million goal needed for construction. The premier location will provide a wonderful opportunity to offer year-around activities such as skiing, hiking, cross-country skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling. Additionally, we will be able to increase the number of heroes served to over 500 per year.
At Hope For Heroes, we aim to build relationships that last a lifetime for our disabled heroes in need, and provide a safe, comfortable environment across all of our events and programs. With enough space to lodge family members or caregivers, this new lodge will help facilitate holistic healing for everyone. The need for this type of natured-based “Camouflage Therapy” cannot wait. Tragically, an average of 22 veterans commit suicide per day, and the suicide rate of law enforcement is 2-3 times higher than the general population. The new lodge will help us continue to build our family of heroes and show that once you take off the uniform, there is an additional brotherhood to be found. Being active in nature helps develop the bond and comradery between our heroes. Through your help, let’s empower our nation’s heroes and help facilitate healing through these great nature-based activiites.
We thank you for your interest in improving the well-being of our nation’s veterans and first responders and with your donation, you can be a part of the healing process for our nation’s heroes.
